Famous quotes with Blustery

  • As an author I found it fascinating interviewing luminaries of the jazz world for over 15 years, beginning with a phone call from Red Rodney on a Thanksgiving Day in 1989 and then a phone call from Stan Getz on Christmas Day; their comments set in motion the quest to write a book about my first husband, Al Haig, the chosen pianist of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie (who gave me the moniker 'Lady Haig' one blustery cold night outside of Birdland on a January night) - and later Stan Getz.”
    Grange Lady Haig Rutan
